i totally procrastinate & black stilettos.

Pardon my absence! 

Let me start off be being incredibly honest. I've just been too lazy. I half started my Thanksgiving recap post, and I just couldn't bring myself to finish it off. At some point it will no longer be relevant, but I'm gonna go ahead and take that chance and procrastinate a little more. So here's my I.O.U. on that.

Something about this particular holiday season has brought on an entire cloud of procrastination. I hate to admit this, but I'm usually that lame-o that finishes buying/making all my presents by late October/early Novemeber. Now, I have 2 weeks left and I haven't finished making all of this years presents making my tree look sad and empty underneath! AGH. Whatevs, at least I finally got my tree up (again, laziness prevails and you'll get the obligatory tree photo later). At some point, I'll probably throw some money at the matter and just buy presents instead of hand-crafting. There just isn't enough time in the day to be this productive all the time. Baking, on the other hand, is non-negotiable. I will and must bake for Christmas. Then to throw on more things that I haven't done yet, Makai and I have yet to visit Santa. I am determined to squeeze out as many cliche Santa and Easter bunny photos I can before he refuses.

On a brighter and more productive note, I just finished my first week of my new job! Woohoo! My manager recently sent out my official team announcement and it was pretty nice to see what I got in reply :) It was very sweet how many people emailed me in congratulations and tell me how well deserved the move up was. It's been a long road at Gap inc. and it's nice to feel like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. But I will admit, it's even nicer to hear affirmations of a new job from other people :P

Now about those shoes
There's nothing like a black patent leather stiletto. I love being able to wear these with literally almost anything. Jeans and tee? yes. Date night dress? duh. To the office? example above! Now that I have the tiniest amount of disposable income, I've decided that treats to myself will now come in shoe form. These in particular weren't really much of a splurge coming from ShoeDazzle ($40). I don't normally order from them, but I thought I'd give it a try and found a couple of gems amongst some of the tackier fluff. As I've shared before, I don't like my feet, and I felt like this pair helped make my feet look skinny. Is that weird? I'm worried about my feet looking skinny? It probably is, but either way, these helped solve that dilemma. So if you're a total weirdo about feet, shoes, and feet slimming shoes like me, I hope I helped. For those of you that aren't crazy but still like classic, sexy, and simple heels, I still suggest these. I wasn't always a fan of pointy toed shoes, but I've slowly come around and these helped win me over.
